Potentially somewhat of a cliche to use as a title for a first Journal entry, however where to begin this is something that has been bugging me since I thought about writing some sort of journal a week or so go.
I guess the best place to start is why? What brought me to the decision to write an online journal? On the surface I imagine my life looks pretty reasonable to most. I have a stable job, I have a girlfriend who I’ve been with for coming up on 9 years, my own house, 2 cats, I don’t have many friends but the ones I do have are worth more to me than any amount of friends that I could have. In fact I imagine reading that you would wonder what I have to complain about?
It’s when you start to dig below the surface that the reasons for wanting to write about me become clearer. I have different things going on in my life that I feel the need to talk about, I can’t talk about them to my friends, girlfriend or family as it involves them all in different ways. In the grand scheme of things and again to most people reading, they probably won’t seem like much of an issue but to me they mean a lot and affect me on a daily basis. That’s why I’m here and what I plan to do over the next few weeks/months/years, talk about the goings on in my life in an anonymous manner to people that may or may not read this. Will it work? Will I feel better for getting things off my chest? I have no idea, but I needed to start somewhere so I guess after all that, the cliche title has an answer. Sort of.
